Why is our search for extra-terrestrial life forms linked to a search for water? Why does ice float in a glass of water? What makes water different from other liquids? In this article, the author uses many everyday observations of water to explore it as a topic that can be studied across classes and disciplines.

Living organisms can be studied at different levels of organization — from molecules to ecosystems. Our current understanding of chemistry sheds some light on the way we understand living organisms at each of these levels. This article offers a glimpse of some interesting aspects of ‘life’ through the lens of chemistry.

The use of fluorescent tags in imaging and disease detection has been part of many important scientific discoveries. What is fluorescence? How was it discovered? How are fluorescent molecules used to detect disease?

We are in a race to synthesize new elements — each with more protons and neutrons than ever before. Unlike naturally occurring elements, these newly created elements seem ephemeral — ceasing to exist almost as soon as they are created. What makes them so unstable? Why do we synthesize them? What does their creation reveal to us?

Think of the smallest object you have seen. A sand particle, a mustard seed, some dust particle, or anything else that is very small. What happens if you use a microscope and a very tiny knife and cut it into two halves? You will get a smaller sand particle, a smaller mustard seed, etc. What if you cut the smaller particle again? You will get an even smaller particle.

In a fun and personal talk, Ramsey Musallam gives 3 rules to spark imagination and learning, and get students excited about how the world works.

Here's the transcript:

Chemistry always conjures up visions of working in a laboratory. In the current scenario, however, we have several parents home schooling their children. How do these children work on experiments ? Do they have access to good laboratories? Or do they learn without doing any experiments? Is that tedious? Engage yourself with this parent who tells us all about how his daughter learnt chemistry at home.
